Ni no kuni II: Revenant kingdom – The precursorgames review

Ni no kuni 2 review title

The sequel that no one saw coming, but everyone wanted. Ni no kuni II offers a rather different experience to the original, whilst mostly retaining the high standards set in place by it.
This time around, we’re introduced to our main character, not as an innocent little boy from the real world, but as the crown prince, and acting king of Ni no kuni itself.
Coming from this angle gives us an immediate idea as to the angle this game is going for, that being a Ni no kuni-centric plot, revolving around a single large world map. Continue reading Ni no kuni II: Revenant kingdom – The precursorgames review

Why is no one talking about Child of Light 2 getting announced?

child of light title

Child of Light, one of my favourite games to release in the past decade, and one of the few games to take advantage of the sorely underused UbiArts engine, was announced to be coming to Switch recently.
And by recently, I mean two months ago, and by coming to Switch, I mean it’s out in a week.

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about! I’m sure you’ve seen it in the title at this point, but have a look at this here tweet from a Ubisoft dev: Continue reading Why is no one talking about Child of Light 2 getting announced?

The World Ends With You on Switch has tweaked combat and it’s a little bit concerning

twewy controls title

While I’m tremendously excited to be able to play this game again on a modern console, the lack of a second screen is leading to some questionable, but ultimately understandable decisions with this port.
In the original DS game, enemy encounters were carried out over both screens, with each screen acting as a different “dimension” as such.  Continue reading The World Ends With You on Switch has tweaked combat and it’s a little bit concerning

I bought a whole bunch of old Digimon cards

Oh, what have I done. I’ve poked my collectors nerve and started looking into the original Digimon cards.
There I was, kicked back in my chair, enjoying a morning coffee when I’m struck with this urge, this strong nostalgic urge to have a look at my old Digimon cards. And have a look I did, but this doesn’t end there, because from here… I found myself typing the words every collector both loves and fears into the Google search bar… “ebay”Continue reading I bought a whole bunch of old Digimon cards

PSA: Dragon ball FighterZ is out now on Switch and it’s amazing

fighterZ launch title

It’s no secret that I’ve been.. Well, hella hyped for this game. And yes, I was at the store for 9am this morning like the idiot I am, laughing as I grab the only copy in stock (looks like retail copies may be a little hard to come by).
But anyway, now that I’ve got it, and have played it all day, what do I think of it?  Continue reading PSA: Dragon ball FighterZ is out now on Switch and it’s amazing

Yokai Watch 3 announced for Europe this Winter and February 8th in the states!

yokai watch 3 announcement cover

Ohohohoho I have been waiting for this announcement for some time now. Yokai Watch 3 is officially getting an English localisation! And soon, too.
For those of us here in Europe, the release date is stated as “winter”, rather than the definitive “February 8th” those in America have gotten.
Now, technically, February does still count as Winter, so it could end up being the same release date, but the wording at this point appears to hint at us in Europe getting it a little bit early, which certainly makes a change! Continue reading Yokai Watch 3 announced for Europe this Winter and February 8th in the states!
